‘Skandi Singapore’ hired by Saipem for W. Africa work
DOF Subsea UK Limited, a provider of integrated subsea services, has begun work on a multi-million dollar contract with Saipem S.A.
The scope sees the provision of DOF Subsea’s DSV Skandi Singapore and project crew, to complete two key construction projects offshore West Africa.
As well as supplying the Skandi Singapore, DOF Subsea will provide Project Management and Technical Support, specialist survey services, ROV services, and offshore project crew to assist Saipem S.A. in operations for the Nene/Litchendjili & Congo River Crossing (CRX) projects taking place in Congo, Angola and D.R.Congo respectively.
Managing Director, Giovanni Corbetta said: “We are thrilled to be awarded this contract by Saipem S.A. Both projects play to the strengths of one of our key vessels, the Skandi Singapore, and her experienced crew. This scope will see her arriving in the region from her normal base in Asia-Pacific and staying for approximately four months before returning. This is a significant win for us and we are delighted with the progress made so far.”
